VESSELS ASHORE. - The Cleveland Plain Dealer says that night before last the schooner WHIP, Capt. Coyne, which had sailed between Cleveland and Sault Ste. Marie during the past summer, went ashore in attempting to make the harbor, just outside the pier. She soon filled with water, a heavy sea running at the time. She was loaded with lumber, and will be lighted and got off without much difficulty. Her cargo was owned in Detroit, and the vessel was insured in Cleveland. Loss but slight.
